I've used this cycle path virtually every day since we moved here.

Smooth surfaces are very important for cyclists. However, while this surface was a little rough, as you can see from the bit still remaining red tarmac, it was smoother than most UK roads and certainly had no imperfections that I'd report as a pot-hole in the UK.

However, this still fell below the standards expected of Dutch cycle paths, so we received letters about it being too rough a few days ago and now the whole thing is being replaced.

It's not merely being patched up. They've scraped off about 12 cm of tarmac leaving the concrete layer beneath and are replacing the entire length.

The width of the cycle path and the separate pavement are shown in yellow.

Other views of the old "rough" surface are shown in #11535 and #11536.
